Hi Girlies! And, Happy Pink Saturday.......

Oh my goodness..........I CANNOT believe it's already Pink Saturday again.....where has the week gone?

That's a clue.........I'm totally unprepared.....not that that hasn't ever happened before, huh?

So, we'll just have a little oddball collection of pinks.........hope this will pass! :-)

First up? Oh yes......that is THE cutest PINK of little baby girl when she was only three months old.....where have the 38 years gone?.....Hmmmmmmm.......sounds like a theme

Let's peek at something else...........As I've said........Bellamere Cottage is a bitsy place....quite humble....with only a few choices for the kitchen counters, etc. I hated alllll of them, so I opted for the standard white laminate. I do plan to change that, but I'm doing other things right now, so it's on the back burner.

What I wanted to show you is the backsplash.....Hey, I'll do ANYTHING with paint....the island top, the entry floor and faux tile for my backsplash. I actually did the same thing in the kitchen in our old house. So easy and I don't think it even cost five dollars. My kind of fix-up!

I just used the paint that was there as the "grout". Then, using a square of cardboard, drew all the lines, covered them with basting tape from the fabric store and sponged the color on the remaining area, removed the tape............voila! Tile. Not perfect, but it works for a temporary solution.....And, it's a heck of a lot cuter than white walls.

When the hubbs and I went to Port Townsend I found this darling little teapot.....with a great price. Did I buy it, you ask? No..........I didn't..........I don't know why sometimes I have these cheap attacks, but it was one of those times. I've regretted it every day since then. Darn it all.

Ahhhhhhh............this would be my little granddog. Isn't she adorable? I think she's one of the cutest Westies I've ever seen. Her name is Trixie Belle and she's my pup's BFF!

Just for good little Ruby Mae PetuniaBelle.....they're both five now. We got them right about the same time.

And, finally..........I won this wonderful giveaway from Linda at Royal Touch!

I loved it all, but those glasses? They're FABULOUS! I was so tickled.

Thank you so much Linda!

It made my day.

Thank you so much for coming and for muddling through my ramblings.

Oh yes, I can drone on.

God bless you all!

Have a Fabulous weekend.

Huggies and Lovies,

Oh my gosh....I'm so sorry....I forgot to mention the wonderful Beverly, who hosts this great event.... (She's also on my favorite girlies list)....

Do go visit the other fabulous pinks!

It's so much fun.



  1. Spencer, I can't believe you didn't buy that pink tea pot...but I understand cheap attacks.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  2. For a blog you pieced together you should did a lovely job, Spencer! Your darling little girl is so cute and I love the doggie photos! Happy pink Saturday!


  3. That is the cutest baby picture, Spencer! She is adorable.

    I'm really impressed by your kitchen. I love the painted backsplash and island. I usually like rihcer colors but I really like the pastels with the light wood with just a few touches of black to ground everything.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  4. Good morning, Spencer. No matter how simple you say something is, it's always just perfect. I like how you have taken a plain wall and turned it into tiles- but then it was your island that first sparked my interest in your site! what a cute baby dressed in pink- oh where have the years gone, huh?
    BTW, you'll find another teapot along the way- and you may like it more than the one you passed up... Have a good weekend, it's going to be another beautiful almost fall day here!
    hugs, Sue

  5. A Happy PinK SaTuRdAy to you!!! What lovely pinks you have! I spy a PINK tea kettle!! OMG where did you get that!?! I LOVE it!!!

    Hugs, Marsha

  6. Great pinks. I love them all. What a great job on the kitchen. It looks fabulous and so creative of you. Hugs, Marty

  7. I love what you did with the backsplash and think it looks fantastic, sugar! Very creative. Paint can cover a multitude of sins, don't ya know! The blue looks gorgeous too. All in all a very successful project I'd say, honey.

  8. In your picture, the "tile" looks real! Good job! Love all your pinks!

  9. Happee Saturday Spencer!! I love all of your pink, and aren't you just so creative to faux tile your backsplash!! It looks so good!! I love all of your little touches and would love to see the top of that island! Is it in a previous post somewhere?

    Also love that baby pic!!! Too precious!

    Hope all is well with you, and that your weekend is delightful. You sure are!

    Love and hugs,

  10. Hi Spencer,

You two must take in the sites around the city before act 3, you deserve the royal treatment through and through! Come back next week to see M. Balzac meet up with the climax!!! Bisous, Anita

  23. What a wonderful Pink Saturday post..I loved it all. Happy Pinks and hope your weekend is a lovely one.

  24. Hi Spencer!
    Wonderful post. Just wonderful. I so love the teapot. I can't believe you didn't snag it. I hate it when I question myself, and then later wish I had just bought it. I have to ask about Ruby Mae,is she a little Boston Terrier? I have a Boston Terrier named Bruiser, I call him Handsome, but he is posted on my scrollbar on my blog. I just love him. He is 6 years old. Lovely post as always. Please stop by and say hi. I love it when you visit. Country hugs, Sherry

  25. I love the pinks you selected to share with us today. Your daughter was a gorgeous baby. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  26. Hi Spen

  27. Oh Spencer, your little girl was so adorable! Love the pink tea pot and congrats on winning the wonderful giveaway...Christine

  30. Your baby girl is ADORABLE!! Happy Pink Saturday, Spencer! Hope you've been enjoying your weekend! ~tina

  31. what a great solution for a backsplash! Those are two cute pups too! Not to mention the sweet baby girl! Congrats on your win and have a great week ahead.

  32. So sorry that I am getting to you a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday. Seems like the day just got away from me.

    The sun was out in the afternoon and all day today, so with all the rain we've had, I went outside to play.

    As always, it is a pleasure to come here to see what you are sharing and what you've been up to during the week. Thanks so much for making my weekend all ♥Pink and Pretty♥

  33. Hi Spencer....beautiful baby picture of the daughter..loved the milk glass glasses you got in a giveaway...they look fabulous...

  34. Nice pink post. You have us all fooled because your post looks like you put a lot of thought into it. =) I loved all of your pink stuff. I should have picked up that pink tea pot! But I'm like you to. The price has to also be right for the item I'm purchasing. Have a nice day!

  35. Spencer, that picture of your bright eyed little girl is absolutely adorable. Your backsplash could have fooled me-you clever lady. Congratulations on a wonderful prize-you lucky lady! But, I am sorry you didn't purchase that pretty pink teapot. laurie

  36. Spencer,
    Love the picture of your daughter, she is close to the age of my daughter. Thank you for the info on the Bellemere Cottage sign. I still have not found a board and it will be awhile. I had foot surgery and have an angel of a husband pushing me around in a wheelchair. I know what you went through. Love your blog and look forward to reading it each day. You have such a talent.
    Blessings, Sandy

  37. The picture of your daughter is very sweet. I liked all your pink things. And your playlist is great - I really enjoyed Dean Martin singing Sway - we have very similar taste in music. ;-)

  38. Hi Spencer! Sorry I'm just now getting back to you about the Garlic Fest. I've been seeing signs all over for it. I haven't decided if I'll be going or not. I have to babysit my nephew all weekend so it might depend upon his little two year old mood. Are you planning to go? I'd stay away from that deep fried garlic for sure!!!

  39. Spencer... just thought I'd drop by... I'm back from my nearly 2-week vacation in California... it was beautiful! Next time, Ricky says, "let's go further north... maybe Oregon or Washington State"... We loved the cool temps and the lush green... but happy to be home in hot and dry south TX~ we must be nuts!


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
